Gramercy by Mike Nolan in New York City, New York, USA

Photography is a way of me being able to capture the way I romanticize the things I look at. Showing this to people is so rewarding. This is the Veterans Hospital in Gramercy, where all around the area are housing complexes full of trees planted within them. It’s a very interesting scene to look at, it seems like a city coming out from a forest.
